Stepfamilies Unite!

1/3 of all weddings in America today form stepfamilies.

Blended families.  The stats might surprise you.

Thriving in a Stepfamily lets you in on one woman's story.  And her discoveries.  That stepfamilies are formed out of loss.  And that a healthy stepfamily takes time.  And that time with the biological parent is crucial.  And that God can teach you how to love.

What might be a surprise?  The marriage must come first.

John Townsend responds to this oft-challenging situation with some clear, common sense suggestions.  Click hereAnd here, too.  

Need more encouraging resources?  Family Life and Focus on the Family are great places to start.

"Be strong and courageous!  Do not be afraid or discouraged!  For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go" {Joshua 1:9}. 

Yes, God cares about you and your particular situation, as unique and complex as it might be.  And He is able to give you what you need to build your family, one step at a time, into a loving, cohesive unit that brings honor to Christ.
